CLASS HISTORY 



Yes, it seems only yesterday when we, a group of 
wide-eyed Freshmen, entered the portals of Lincolnton 
High School on that brisk autumn day in Septem- 
ber, 1948. 

We learned the way around the building, or at least 
from one of our classes to the other. Then we slowly 
became an organized group. We put ourselves under 
the leadership of Carl Rhvne, and continued to plod 
our way through the first of four glorious years. 

As Sophomores, we no longer were handicapped 
by the title "Freshmen" and we could feel a little more 
important with a younger class following closely behind 
us. This was the year that we carried the daisy chain 
for our beloved Seniors and Rachel Shelton served as 
president. 

Then came our year as Juniors. Bill McCullough 
capably led us onward on our trek. We proudly or- 
dered our class rings, and bur^t with joy when thev 
arrived soon after Thanksgiving. Also, we took the 
Wolf, our school paper, upon our shoulders and pub- 



lished it monthly. Then after long preparation we 
presented a very successful Junior Play. But no way 
could we end the year more successfully than by hon- 
oring the Seniors with our Junior-Senior banquet. Then, 
with our final days at dear ole L.H.S. in sight, we 
pulled the curtain on our third wonderful year. 

But the next fall we found ourselves much too busy 
to have any worries. Immediately we elected our offi- 
cers and Pine Burr staff. With Rachel Shelton again 
guiding us as Madame President, we successfully passed 
through many various activities. We sponsored the 
Fall Carnival, selected invitations, published our an- 
nual, and staged the Senior Play. 

How swiftly the days have flown, and now as we 
come to the last of many steps, we glance back and 
see that we have spent the four brightest years of our 
lives here and with hope we look forward for many 
more shining ones.

CLASS PROPHECY OF 1952 



As I attend a reunion of the class of '52, I am very 
much surprised at the progress that my classmates have made 
since "ole" L.H.S. days. 

Bettv Ballard really has been doing well in the newspaper 
business. She is now editor of the New York Tribune. 
Appearing in the paper have been many articles on our 
Lincolnton gang. In the sports column we read of Jerry Mullen, 
a professional golfer, and Jimmy Carpenter, who has just 
taken Herman Hickman's place at Yale University. 

I am proud to say that we have some famous radio and 
television stars from our class. Bob Campbell, radio disc 
jockey, plays many of Rametb Richard's and Shirlee Line- 
berger's famous records. 

Grover Baker invites us all to watch his television show, 
"The Hour of Beauty," on which appears Miss Gilda Elmore, 
Miss America of 1954. 

Bobby Joe Tisdale has really done well as president of 'he 
Dupont Textile Industry. Among his many secretaries are 
Nancy Cronland, Frances Gregory, Jo Ann Hoke and Ramona 
Ballard. 

The Dixie Grocery Company has employed many of our 
friends, among whom as secretaries are Grace Whitesides, Carrie 
Heavner, Linda Smith and Shirlev Long. Thev employ Dwight 
Saine, Dale Coins and Bill Wehunt as truck drivers, who deliver 
groceries every Thursday to Bobby Baker's grocery store in 
Bessemer City. He seems to be doing rather well. 

Many of our classmates are employed by the government. 
In the Air Corps are Patsv Caskey, Betty Biggerstaff, Elsie 
Painter, Harman Lackey, Bob Cloninger, and Gordon Martin. 

Enlisted in the Navy are Joe Goode, Buddy Goodson, Earl 
McAlister, and Johnny Miller. Only one of our boys, Clyde 
Mace, bad gumption enough to be a jet pilot. 

Martha Coffey, Norene Stamev, Barbara Fortenberrv, Pat 
Grigg, and Inez Mosteller are airline hostesses. Wonder what 
they're after? They couldn't have gone along just for the ride! 

Sue Jane Conner is a flight nurse. 

Shirlev Keener, Nellie Leatherman, and Bettv Saine, all 
telephone operators, were telling me that Jim Ramseur and 
Betty Snipes have gone to Africa— Betty as a snake charmer 
and Jim as her guide. Thev were also telling me that Marcella 
Johnson and Eleen Drum have become famous interior dec- 
orators. I can't imagine how they found out about all this! 

I was very happy to learn that the Mauney twins, James 
and Johnny, have really hit the top in the United States 
Marine Band. 

Jim Stamev and Paul Lail are great rivals in the electrical 
business. How are you and Sue (Smith) getting along, Paul? 

Raymond Graham, Don Kevt and Walter Broome have 
become pretty successful as engineers. Raymond has as his 
secretaries, Patty Hovis and Alene Brown. Don's secretaries 
are Kathryn Wright, Nancy Eurey, and McGretta Lowe. 
Walter's are Jean and Jane Reinhardt and Ocie Faye Rhyne. 

Jerry Leonard and Paul Mundy have really struck it rich, 
or should I say, have struck oil. Now they drive Cadillacs. 

Speaking of rich people, Jack Benfield and Billy Baxter 

own a chicken farm on the Beepsville Road. Mack Canipe 

is working on the farm. He and Jack just can't seem to 
separate. 

Well, whom should I see Louise Warlick talking to but 
Phvlis Conner, who has six children, and Nancy Buff', who 
has five. Thev were discussing their children. All except 
Louise, that is! 

Speaking of children, Glenda Keener has four of her nine 
children. Wonder if all of them will be football players? 

Valda Babb has three brats and has nine to go. She believes 

in the saying, "Cheaper bv the dozen." 

Whom should I see huddled in a corner but David Keener, 
Max Elmore, Reginald Hurt and J. D. Shuford, all talking 



about mechanics. All of them are talking at the same time, 
so I will not stop to listen. 

As I look across the room, I see Ermintrude Grigg and 
Doris Ellis talking to Patsy Mace and Freeda Bost. For a 
minute I thought thev were crazy, as they were making 
motions around their heads, but I soon learned that they were 
beauticians and they were describing the new hair-do's. What 
a hair-do! 

Everyone is interested to hear that Grace Goodson and 
Barbara Daves have been getting along well in the business 
world. Grace is a dress designer, and Barbara is her commercial 
artist. 

Speaking of designers makes me think of Jerry Payseur, 
who has been in Detroit designing automobiles. 

Leslie Rudisill. Eleanor Seagle, and Patricia Rudisill have 
become directors of religious education. 

Football coaches from our class have been plentiful. Henry 
Reynolds and Paul Conner are at Georgia Tech; Glenn Warren, 
at the University of North Carolina; Ralph Taylor and Bill 
Eaker, at The Citadel; and David Goodson at West Point. 

Some of our classmates came back to "Ole L.H.S." Garlene 
Seagle is an eleventh grade English teacher and Betty Byers 
is teaching twelfth grade English. Margaret Cline is teaching 
piano in Miss We'.more's ex studio, and Mary Ramsey is 
now the band director. Hugh Peeler is enjoying his work 
as boys' physical education director, while Annette Thornburg 
is happy with her work of girls' physical education director. 

Speaking of teachers, Anne Yoder and Janet Mavo are 
teaching history in Newton. Rachel Shelton ami Barbara 
Proctor are teaching in High Point. 

Ruby Hoyle has proven to be a good recreational director. 

A number of our classmates landed in Washington, D. C, 
with government jobs. Betty Jean Helms and Tom Rudisill 
as F.B.I, agents; Georgette Weaver, fingerprint expert; Pat 
Mauney, private detective; Bill McCullough, State Department 
of United States Government. 

As usual, Dan Cupid always claims his share of the class. 
Shirley Parker, Marilyn Crowe]], Shirley Carpen'er, Jeanet'.e 
Williams, Mary Hoffman, Geraidine Sain, Doris Mauney, Joyce 
Bvers, Angeline Bradshaw, Barbara Byers, and Missie Auton are 
making comfortable homes for their husbands and children. 

Geraidine Hart, who is so successfully practicing dentistry, 
has as her assistants Joanne Moss, Marcene FIuss, and Ravnell 
Lawing. Her private secretary is Glenda Stamey. 

Betty Jean Beal, Louise Grigg, Margie Neill, Bonnie Pay- 
seur, Nellie Sue Avery, and Carolyn Burgess are serving in 
foreign countries as Red Cross nurses. 

Phyllis Beattie is Superintendent of Nurses at the Baptist 
Hospital in Winston Salem. Sybil Llovd, Mary Ellen Wentz, 
Betty Brown Crotts, and Lucille Smith are doing private duty 
there. 

It is nice to know that Bovce Long has become world 
famous in the field of psychiatry. In time he will probably 
meet many members of his class as the strain of life over- 
takes them. 

We notice the ambitious Howard Hefner is still lugging 
groceries for the A & P. His enthusiasm is at the same high 
pitch but his steps are slower. 

You can now get your prescriptions expertly filled by Dr. 
Thomas Keever at the new Keever Drugs Company in 
Gastonia. 

John Senter has become successful as a Certified Public 
Accountant in Charlotte. 

Well, the time has finally come for me to take one last look 
at all my classmates leaving with only the memory of the 
wonderful times spent in this grand school that we are so 
proud to call ours.

CLASS POEM 

We, the class of fifty-two, 
Have come to say goodbye. 
Old L.H.S., our years with you 
Have flown so swiftly by. 

I hough obstacles have barred our way 
We've had some good times here. 
Victoriously we've reached the day 
We leave these scenes so dear. 

Though filled with pride our hearts arc sad 
And touched with memories too. 
Of work well done, of joys we shared 
And friendships tried and true.
